Whatever you do in this city, make sure you spend most of your time in this charming square. Formed by the tightly aligned like small palaces buildings, a combination of cultural destinations and commercial places, this relatively vast square, brings to mind similar old European plazas.

We recommend to visit the square in the evening because is very nicely lightened, all the stores are opened and you can find many very tasty sweets, mulled wine and good food. It is a must see place in Sibiu. We will come back here for sure.

It's a great place for an evening walk. It's a peaceful and romantic atmosphere, and the lights give it a magic spirit.
